This Syrah comes from vines aged between 70 and 110 years old, located on one of Côte-Rôtie’s finest sites. It is a beautiful, dark ruby colour, offering deep, dark fruit aromas of plums and blackcurrant, with hints of crushed strawberries and confit cherries, great minerality and delicate spice. The very fine tannins are well integrated, extremely elegant and fresh. There is a backbone of acidity on the mid-palate which opens up to a long and savoury finish. This full-bodied Syrah offers everything – an impressive fruit profile, rich but elegant tannins, explosive acidity and a mineral finish. This magnificent Côte-Rôtie is clearly built for ageing. Cellar for another three or four years to enjoy its full potential.
